an fbi investigation that ended in general petraeus' abrupt resignation. it all started with complaints to the fbi about harassing e-mails sent from this woman, paula broadwell, to the another unnamed woman. petraeus was not the focus of investigators, but that led them to other e-mails between petraeus and broadwell which officials tell nbc news were indicative of an extramarital affair. the general admitted to an extramarital affair in his resignation letter. meanwhile we're now hearing from petraeus' former spokesperson. he talked to kristen welker. she's in washington with more. >> i interviewed steven boylan by phone saturday. he called petraeus a mentor and friend. boylan says he's stunned by the news about his former boss. in the meantime, new details are emerging about how this all came to light. according to multiple sources, the down fall of general david petraeus all started with a seemingly unrelated complaint to the fbi. officials say it was triggered by e-mails from paula broadwell to another woman not related to petraeus who felt she was being harassed and complained to t
complained to the fbi last spring when paula broadwell was having an affair with petraeus allegedly harassed her with jealous e-mails. petraeus admitted the affair with broadwell but denies any elicit contact with kelley. so does general allen who was scheduled for a senate confirmation hearing this very week to become nato's supreme allied commander. today that's on hold, but he will continue in his position as the investigation continues. and all of that as the pentagon digs through 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other communications, many with kelley over a two-year period. >>> each revelation brings 100 new questions and my colleague chris lawrence joins me from the pentagon to answer some of them. chris, so many twists and turns in this story. it's hard to keep track, quite frankly. let's begin with general john allen. we're talking about 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails, many of them to jill kelley. it really seems like an incredible amount of e-mail traffic between a high-ranking general and a woman who really is just a volunteer for the military. how unusual is this? and what

.s. commander in afghanistan. the pentagon says the fbi has uncovered thousands of potentially inappropriate emails between allen and jill kelley, the woman who complained of harassment from petraeus' lover, paula broadwell. her complaint to the fbi led to the discovery of broadwell and petraeus's relationship, prompting his resignation on friday. allen succeeded petraeus in afghanistan last year. the pentagon says allen will remain the u.s. commander in afghanistan for now, but the plans to nominate him to become nato's supreme allied commander are on hold pending the outcome of an investigation. on monday night, fbi agents continued their probe by searching broadwell's north carolina home. as the obama administration faces turmoil with two top military leaders, reports are continuing to emerge of the potential makeup of its second term cabinet. according to the washington post, massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate john kerry has emerged as a potential candidate to become the next secretary of defense. a decorated veteran of the vietnam war, john kerry became known in the
of the investigation. the f.b.i. has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. yen petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the c.i.a. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the c.i.a. with respect to this personal matter he's now dealing with with his family and with his wife. it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> what about voters? do they deserve to know? >> i think you'll to sr. to talk to
't know. that was the very week she was interviewed by the f.b.i., by the way, which was pretty astonishing. >> pretty remarkable knowing that she would still talk to the public. this is a woman who didn't lack confidence. if there are potential problems, is it a paula broadwell problem or a david petraeus problem? >> it depends onhat she had, obviously. is it fshe had something from david petraeus. i was struck by the president calling it a personal matter and talking about hills time as a general. we talked about david petraeu pelast night and his incredible service over so many deployments and how hard that is. the fact is, he was c.i.a. director. he wasn't a general in the army any more. he was c.i.a. director. and most people i've talked to think that is a very, very different situation. >> julianna let's go back to oba fair moment. you've been watching him going on close to five years-- over four years. he's pretty confident, isn't he? he feels good, as he should, i suppose, this is a more comfort, assertive obama than we saw six months ago. >> i thought it was noteworthy
